Formby Festival is more than just a festival

THIS fantastic event will bring you lots of food, drink, live music and entertainment over 3 days from 14 July to 16 July 2017. With cuisines and delights from across the globe, there's something to satisfy each person's taste. Italian? Thai? Indian? Real ales, fine wines and everything in between. Whatever quenches your thirst the event organisers hope they will be able to say:- "We've got it!"

The event organizers have told us that:- "This year's event we are told will have chef demos throughout the Saturday and Sunday, with the show's resident celebrity BBC Fusion Chef of the Year; Aazam Ahmed with guest chefs as well. On the main stage this year, it's going to be jam packed with the finest talent the UK has to offer.  From Friday night right through to Sunday evening you'll hear local bands, choral groups and even see performances from TV stars! The event will also have lots of things to keep the little ones busy too!"

The event organisers added:- "From inflatable's, archery, climbing wall, water bumper boats, paintballing, the cave, rodeo bull, steam train, donkey rides to name, but a few. Plus the show will have many free activities for the kids too, including:- kids cooking zone, magic shows, balloon modelling, circus school and a craft marquee (all free). On top of all that, why not watch the dog display team or other displays in the arena?  You can even enter the events bake off completion!
